Coming soon: World Press Freedom Day

In a nod to Tuesday’s global day celebrating press freedom, my students in the International News Media class have spent the last three weeks trying to connect with fellow students in other countries to find out how free their student media are.   (This year’s theme is: “21st Century Media: New Frontiers, New Barriers.”) They’ve reached out to individual students and to Journalism departments in countries ranging from Mexico to Tanzania.

Are we living in a global village after all?  Results on Wednesday.

If you’d like to be part of the World Press Freedom Day celebration, UNESCO is soliciting video responses to “What does press freedom mean to you?”
